Reliance Exits Shale Gas Business in North America


Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) will be exiting the shale gas business in North America as an agreement was inked on November 8 to sell off the assets linked to its subsidiary Reliance Eagleford Upstream Holding, LP (REUHLP) in Eagleford shale play.

The pact for sale of assets has been inked between REUHLP and Ensign Operating III, LLC, a Delaware-based limited liability company.

The agreement is aimed at divesting REUHLP’s “interest in certain upstream assets in the Eagleford shale play of Texas, USA”, said a press release issued by RIL.

“With this transaction, Reliance has divested all its shale gas assets and has exited from the shale gas business in North America,” it added.
